About Geoffrey Fox

"He was like a man who had served a term in prison or had been to Harvard College or had lived for a long time with foreigners in South America."
― Carson McCullers on Jake Blount, in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.

After graduating from Harvard, I worked in Venezuela and other Latin American countries, finally getting a Ph.D. in sociology (Northwestern U.) and teaching and writing on Latin American themes. I began writing fiction later, including a book of short stories, Welcome to My Contri (reviewed in New York Times, 1988) and many other stories in print and online journals. I have also written five nonfiction books on Latin America and many articles and reviews for print and online media, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Nation and others. A Gift for the Sultan, my first published novel (2010), has been translated into Turkish and published by Nokta Kitap, Istanbul (2012). I am currently (2014) working on a new novel about the Paris Commune of 1871. I live in southeastern Spain.
